We participated in a Lenten discipline which asked us to offer thanksgiving for an abundant blessing that we often take for granted: clean fresh water. By contributing towards a thank offering that blessing of clean fresh water can now be shared with a family in an African village through Episcopal Relief and Development.
Thanks to your contributions we have reached our goal of raising well over $300 for a safe well system. With these systems in place people no longer have to spend hours fetching water from polluted lakes, rivers and streams.
Water borne illnesses will be a thing of the past.
Girls can spend their time going to school instead of hauling water. Women are able to care for their families in a clean home and also pursue education and employment which will create a better future for themselves and their communities. God bless you all.
